EHS652: Evaluation of Chemical Hazards

  • Graduate level
  • Both Residential and OJOC
  • Fall term(s) for OJOC and residential students;
  • 3-4 credit hour(s) for OJOC and residential students;
  • Instructor(s): Meeker, John
  • Last offered Fall 2020
  • Prerequisites: Previous or concurrent enrollment in biostatistics course
  • Description: Concepts and techniques related to the evaluation of occupational exposures to gases, vapors, and aerosols. Emphasis on operating mechanisms and practical aspects of industrial hygiene air-monitoring equipment, characterizing exposure distributions, and developing sampling strategies. Lectures, laboratory exercises, demonstrations, problems, technical reports, and reading. Primarily for students in occupational health and safety.

EHS657: Advanced Exposure Assessment

  • Graduate level
  • Residential
  • Winter term(s) for residential students;
  • 3 credit hour(s) for residential students;
  • Instructor(s): Meeker, John (Residential);
  • Last offered Winter 2020
  • Prerequisites: EHS507, BIOSTAT503/equivalent, EPID503/equivalent
  • Description: The course will introduce classical, contemporary, and cutting-edge approaches to the estimation of human exposure to environmental and occupational agents as it relates to epidemiology studies as well as risk science, regulatory compliance, exposure source/route apportionment, and susceptibility factors. Qualitative and quantitative methods in exposure science will be covered, including surrogate measures, exposure modeling, and biological markers of exposure, in addition to statistical concepts such as exposure measurement error and efficient study design.
